My husband and I chose this cruise because who wouldn't want to go to Hawaii?! And, with 5 days at sea each way, we were guaranteed lots of rest and relaxation. We got into Vancouver 1 day early, which allowed for some good exploring of ... Read more

Warning: This review is long, but worth reading if you are seriously considering a cruise on the Star. If you want to move on quickly I’ll say my overall impression of the ship (including all services and amenities) is below average, ... Read more

We chose this 10 day holiday as it left from our home town and returned there at the end, avoiding the often horrible day of airports and flights that can ruin a holiday. Expecting a nice experience on the Star, which we'd had before, we ... Read more

We took this cruise since it was a great deal and fit in with our vacation schedule. Also, we'd been on several Princess cruises that we enjoyed, although not recently and on different ships. I was really looking forward to it, but felt ... Read more

Michele Tuvo is the captain of the Star Princess, the star, the de facto cruise director, gregarious raconteur, charming host and tour guide. He never saw a whale he didn’t talk about, even if his passengers were having an afternoon ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because we had been on the same itinerary the year before but on a different ship. We were especially looking forward to returning to Loreto. The crew on the STAR PRINCESS were amazing; they did their jobs ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise, fifth on Princess. We are a couple in our late 60"s. We had a great cruise although some interesting events took place. There was a fist fight in the Princess theater over "saved" seats. Staff ... Read more

Many cutbacks and they are missed. For example, the dining menu used to include steak as a daily alternative. It was changed to beef medalions. NOW we have hamburger as a daily alternative. Menu is too fancy and just for those trying to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the sea days. There were 10 of them and I loved them. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so many of our Hawaii plans were cancelled. But, the cruise was amazing, despite the weather. I read a review ... Read more

We picked this 15 day cruise because it was the same price as the 7 day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands leaving out of Honolulu. We flew in to LAX a day early and stayed at the Crown Plaza next to the harbor. Great location within ... Read more

We wanted to return to Hawaii and this was the 9th Princess Cruise. I am thinking I will never cruise Princess again. The ship temperature was not for passengers but hauling raw meat. People were wearing winter coats on the ship. The audio ... Read more

Our relatives chose this cruise and we tagged along. However, it was very convenient for us, living in the LA area, that it was a round trip to and from LA. Captain Michele Tuvo was an exceptional captain - he was friendly, funny, fun ... Read more
